    An excellent chapter all around, this also features a really funny encounter between a naked Katar Hol and Adam Strange. The art remains firmly family friendly, but Adams observation about where the hair grows on Hawkmans body gives the reader a definite mental image to fill in the blanks. Read Full Review

    If I had a complaint, it would only be that the story progresses too little in each installment; this could probably work in a 4 or 5 issue mini-series, with just adding a few pages at the end of each. That being said, it's still on my pull list, so I guess stretching it out makes sense from a financial perspective, if people will still read it. I'm looking forward to seeing how the story progresses. Read Full Review

    I still dig the Hamlet and Horatio vibe I am getting from this book. There is still a chance for a final battle where everyone dies except Horatio. I am rooting for his “Goodnight sweet prince” moment. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Dec 7, 2016

    Death of Hawkman continues to be a so-so kind of story that doesn't offer a lot, but I still find myself enjoying it enough by the time the issue is over.  It's full of bright colors though and excellent art all the way through.  I just wish a little more would happen because we're moving at a snail's pace.   Read Full Review

    Comic Book Review (8.5/10) “Great”
    Death of Hawkman #3 of 6 “Strange Bedfellows”
    Writer: Mark Andreyko
    Pencillers: Aaron Lopresti/ Rodney Buchemi
    Plot: Adam Strange has travelled to Thanagar to gain the help of Katar Hol aka Hawkman to find the terrorists who attacked Rann and murdered Alanna’s father Sardath. Now Rann is mounting an retaliatory offense against Thanagar, while Strange and Hol are racing against the clock to find the true perpetrators. Strange and Hol find out that Despero maybe behind the terrorist attack against Sardath and Rann…
    This is probably the best issue in this series thus far, and I like the fact that an old villain is introduced in this issue although his face was teased on the cover of issue #1 of 6. Although it is not an original story, as perpetrators dressed like the opposition to start a war is not a new idea (Aquaman Rebirth, the movie “Captain America: Civil War”, etc.), the execution is good and Andreyko seems to finally be getting into the meat of this storyline. The past two stories have been kind’ve slow, but this issue has made me excited for upcoming issues.
    It seems Lopresti and Buchemi shared art duties on this book, but I didn’t really notice a change in art direction or styles while reading the book, so it seems that the back-up artist was a good match. The book is not the best looking book out there, but the art gets the job done, and I am liking the way these artists rendered Strange and Hawkman
